With people becoming more conscious of the waste they produce, you may find it shocking to learn exactly how much waste a wedding can produce. Green Bride Guide asserts that the average wedding produces roughly 400lbs of garbage and 63 tons of CO2. With 2022 statistics showing that there’s going to be 2.5 million weddings next year…that’s roughly 1 billion lbs of trash alone. Gross.
You absolutely don’t have to go to the extreme to make your wedding 100% ethical, eco-friendly, and zero-waste (but if you do, I’m living for it) but if you’d like to throw a more sustainable celebration, I’ve provided a few tips and ideas that will hopefully inspire you during your wedding planning process.
